    After undergoing multiple delays, one of 2020's most anticipated games, Cyberpunk 2077, was apparently set to release in a few weeks on November 19th, especially after having gone gold. But even this did not stop one more delay as CD Projekt Red, the game's developer, announced via a tweet today that their game will be pushed back by 21 days and has now a new release date for December 10th:


    The reason for the delay is to allocate extra time to better prepare and optimize it for its 9 versions (current and next gen) that will launch simultaneously. As the tweet clarifies, going gold means that all content is ready and the game is fully playable but that doesn't mean improvements are out of question.

    Do you think Cyberpunk 2077 will indeed release on December 10th or will it be delayed further into next year?

    By the time it comes out it will be a historical setting instead of sci fi.

    I'm genuinely laughing at another delay. They were recently trying to downplay the reports that they're in crunch-mode, yet here's another delay. There is absolutely no way that there hasn't been crunch finishing up the game

    Must have found a game breaking bug or performance issue to have delayed it at this point. Not that you could blame them - having to work on 9 different versions concurrently.

    Also lol -

    Blah blah blah "delayed game good rushed game bad" quote, but this is getting just dumb now. CDPR really needs to stop fucking sharing all these progress reports and things about how "close" they are to being done with the game if they have to up and delay another goddamn month, especially after they just straight up backpedaled their stance on crunch time a few months back.

    Get it together CDPR

    That old quote doesn't even hold up anymore either. It was said in an age where patches and updates couldn't really be pushed to already released games. Look at No Man's Sky, released as a boring buggy mess, look at it today, it's like an entirely different game and by most accounts, it's genuinely great now.

    the game was delayed multiple times, CDPR in one of communication even confirmed that there won't any further delay, this is SIMPLY RIDICULOUS AND UNACCEPTABLE.

    This game has to be the most over hyped, POS game I have ever seen. Even after all this wait, it's going to be so disappointing when people find out that it was nothing more than a money grab attempt by Projekt Red. An attempt to cash in on the GTA success that Rockstar has had over there years. Hence the reason why people are starting to call this game GTA 2077.

    Usually I would say any delay on a game is bad news, but in this case I can't help but laugh because of the CDProjekt Red fanboys who have lambasted other games/companies for having a singular delay (among the other things that they are hypocritical about) and never shutting up about how it's already GOTY despite it not even being released.
